Housekeeping: Links, free downloads, etc

During the Christmas season with my main focus being sharing out vinyl, I didn't have much time to post information about new music.  I did a few mini-reviews this year, and a couple full-CD reviews, but a lot of the information about new music that I received went un-acknowledged and un-posted.  Fortunately, Stubby excels at keeping us all informed about new Christmas releases each year, especially the artists offering free downloads.

Here on New Year's Day, I want to list out some of the info I received during the season in the e-mail box.  My apologies for not being able to give these artists the attention they are due.  Hopefully these links are still valid when you, the readers, try them out.  So, without further ado, here are links to some new music released in the 2011 season:

Amanda Lamb:  Free download and artist info  link
TimPermanent:  Joy to the World  link
The Bopst Show:  Christmas-music podcasts, as well as others  link
Alternate Root Holiday Sampler:  zip file download
KDHX Radio Holiday podcasts:  link
No Ninja Am I: free download  link
Soujourn Music:  free sampler download link
Jeff Mellin:  free download link
That Band from Holland:  free album  link
The Very Most:  free EP zip file download
Stratocruiser:  free EP  link

There is some very good music in the above list.  I enjoyed Stratocruiser and Amanda Lamb quite a lot, but I just didn't have the time to do them justice with a full review.  I hope you enjoy them, and the other artists and podcasts listed above, as much as I did.
